Remote sensing is crucial to monitoring priority species, such as buffalo, zebra, wildebeest and elephant, in the Gilé National Park (GNAP), knowing positions, movements and habitat use of wildlife is need to mitigate human/wildlife conflicts (HWC), poaching and accidents. For this purpose, GNAP relies on the 24/7 GPS Earthranger tracking and monitoring system.
GNAP currently monitors 2 elephants with the Earthranger system: 1 male called Achilles, 1 female called Cécile and 1 female buffalo.
